Plus points are that guys prefer it if they’re going down on you, it’s cooler in the summer and there’s the hygiene angle too. On the downside is the pain involved, embarrassment and prickly feeling afterwards.
If you decide on it, the choices range from bikini (basically removing hair that would poke out from your bikini so there are normal and string bikini versions), Candibox (a custom design), variations on Brazilian (removing all but a thin strip of hair) and Hollywood (all hair is removed). Aside from the normal bikini, hair is removed from both front and back.
When deciding on where to go to have this done, ask around rather than just plumping for the first place you see. Once you’ve decided on a place, make sure that your hair is between 1/4 and 1/2 inch (too short and the wax won’t catch, too long and you’re looking at serious pain: trim beforehand if needbe). It’s a good idea to apply a numbing cream and take a painkiller before your appointment. If it’s your first time, there’s no avoiding the feeling of embarrassment as obviously the technician will need the vital areas uncovered. Finally, don’t forget to apply the lotion that you’ll be given after your treatment.Copyright (c) 2007-2011 by On a Postcard. All rights reserved.
